Art For Heart committees getting ready for Feb. 21

The fourth Art For Heart is a little more than a month away and organizers say there will be something for everyone.
There will be 18 works of art for the live auction, and 50-to-60 pieces that will be available in the silent auction. All proceeds will go to the American Heart Association. The majority of the artwork is done by local and area artists, and most pieces are donated.
Art For Heart will be Feb. 21 at the Northwood Country Club. There will be a hospitality hour and silent auction at 6 p.m., followed by a dinner at 7:30 p.m. The live auction begins at 8 p.m.
Seating is limited to 300 people, but tickets are still available.
The goal this year is $100,000.
Those who are unable to attend the Art For Heart auction will get a chance to preview the art, and may even make a bid. The art acquisition committee has been accumulating pieces of art and pledges from artists for several months. The artwork will be previewed beginning Feb. 1.
The first peek will come during a Patron's Party at the home of Dr. and Mrs. Mark Phillips Feb. 1. This will be open to sponsors and patrons of Art For Heart, and is by invitation only. All of the art for the auction will be on display.
The art will be moved to Cartmell Gallery the next day. There will be a Gallery Party that night, starting at 6 p.m. Tickets are $25 and cocktails and Hor d'oeurvres will be served.
The artwork will stay on display at Cartmell Gallery until the day of Art For Heart. Anyone may make a sealed bid for one or more pieces of the artwork. Those bids will opened at Art For Heart, and that's where the bidding will begin. If no one tops the written offer, the person making the bid will be able to purchase the artwork the next day.
For more information, call 693-7500.
